Services Available:

  • Airborne and Impact Sound Insulation Testing in accordance with Part E of the Building Regulations and, where required, BREEAM. This is a requirement for new and converted dwellings where there is a separating partition wall or floor;
  • Sound insulation testing of partitions in other building types, including schools and offices, as required to meet client requirements and/or BREEAM assessments;
  • Site testing of existing buildings, to assess current levels of sound insulation and to allow for the design of remedial measures where the performance needs to be increased.

Design Services Available:

  • New-build design reviews and site inspections, to ensure that proposed constructions and detailing of a new building will comply with the acoustic targets of the project. This service will minimise the risk of a sound test failure.
  • Reverberation time assessments for communal areas, as required by Document E of the Building Regulations. Excessive reverberance is a common problem in community halls and suchlike, leading to poor audibility or speech intelligibility. This also impacts upon the rental revenue that can be achieved for such spaces and so the cost of good acoustic design and treatment can be recouped quite quickly in many cases.
